CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Carolina Panthers today presented team members with the 2015 National Football Conference (NFC) Championship rings at a special ceremony at Bank of America Stadium. Created by Jostens, the leading national custom jewelry designer and producer, the one-of-a-kind Panthers Championship ring commemorates the team's second NFC championship.
"Today we were honored to add to the rich history of the Carolina Panthers organization by awarding our players with custom designed Conference Championship rings," said Danny Morrison, President. "It was a pleasure to work with Jostens to create a stunning and unique keepsake that will be treasured by every team member."
"Jostens is proud to partner with the Panthers to create a ring that recognizes the team's remarkable 2015 season and incredible playoff journey," said Chris Poitras, vice president, Jostens.

Crafted in 10-karat white gold, the ring features a custom-cut aquamarine stone and 77 diamonds with a total weight of 1.35 carats. The ring top features the Panthers logo embedded on a football made up of pave-set diamonds, set atop the custom-cut aquamarine stone. Two marquis-cut diamonds represent the team's two NFC titles, and the words 2015 NFC CHAMPIONS adorn the top and bottom of the ring.
